Pastel on board. 26 X 10.
For many months now I wanted to include a beautiful magnifying glass that belongs to my mom in one of my paintings. I finally remembered to ask if I could borrow it. I've always loved marbles; I am fascinated by what happens to the light as it passes through them. What better opportunity to get a closer look at the flowing swirls, the little air bubbles, and the distortions?
